Rag Radio - 2010-07-13 / Former Diplomat Col. Ann Wright on Gaza Flotilla & more


Published July 13, 2010


Col. Ann Wright spent 29 years in the U.S. Army and 16 years with the State Department –- as a political officer in the U.S. Foreign Service. In 1997 she won the State Department’s Award for Heroism. In 2003, she resigned in protest against the Iraq War and other U.S. policies she could no longer defend, and has become a major force in the movements for peace and justice. She has disrupted Congressional hearings, has been arrested for civil disobedience, and has worked hard in support of anti-war GIs. She helped Cindy Sheehan set up Camp Casey at Crawford, Texas. She was on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla that was attacked by Israeli commandos on May 31, 2010. We talk about why she quit, what she has done since, and about what happened on May 31.
